Classification society ClassNK has issued approval certification to Iino Marine Service Co., Ltd. on assessment of an EU MRV Monitoring Plan for its chemical tanker Chemroad Wing as an EU MRV verifier on July 28. The issuance of this approval certification is a first for ClassNK.
 
EU MRV is an EU regulation on the monitoring, reporting, and verification of carbon dioxide (CO2) emissions from vessels. This regulation lays down rules for developing Monitoring Plans to the verifiers accredited by a national accreditation body in the EU by August 31, 2017 for ships above 5,000 gross tons which arrive at or depart from ports under the jurisdiction of an EU member state. EU MRV also outlines requirements for collecting data and submitting Emission Reports from January 1, 2018 (Monitoring Process).
 
ClassNK received approval from U.K.-based national accreditation body UKAS in March 2017 as EU MRV verifier. ClassNK issued approval certification to Iino Marine Service Co., Ltd. for Chemroad Wing for fulfilling the necessary criteria stipulated in EU MRV regulations. The Monitoring Plan submitted states data collection methods for fuel consumption, distance travelled, time spent at sea, amount of cargo carried, as well as methods to be used to treat data gaps.
